I am curious as to what people who work at a bike shop ride or wish they rode.

Thanks

Whatever high end bike that is the best deal on employee form that season. Then sell it next year for more money than they bought it, and get another one.

Man these bike shop guys are clever!

OK, let's say bike shop guy won Weakest Link (quit laughing, he has been in grad school for 7 years) and could then afford to buy a high bike. What then?

My mechanic back in San Diego has this unholy passion for Cannondales. He must have one in every color of the rainbow equipped with Dura Ace. I think he buys the newer model every time a new one comes out, but never gets rid of the older ones. I have never seen a worse obsession.

The hot item around here seems to be sigle speed MTb's and old Gitane and Motobecane 10 speeds retrofitted as fixed gear bikes.
